This perfectly controlled virtuous cycle produces a supple, round, velvety Lalande-de-Pomerol with a bouquet that characteristically displays hints of red fruit and lovely aromatic persistence. This is a deep, balanced wine, crafted to be kept, which matches subtly with a Bordeaux-style entrecote steak or an exotic dish.
The winery at ChÃ¢teau La Fleur de BoÃ¼ard is unique worldwide and enables the finest expression of this Lalande-de-Pomerol terroir using a revolutionary wine making process. The family's quest for elegance and perfection is guided by a desire to protect this terroir and by precise analysis carried out in the oenological laboratory set up on the estate.
The 2014 La Fleur de Bouard has a detailed and quite intense bouquet with blackberry, raspberry and cedar aromas, an attractive floral scent that emerges with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, lively and crisp in the mouth, although the finish shuts everything down a little early. Therefore, give this Lalande de Pomerol three or four years in bottle to allow those tannins to mellow and just gain the charm of the aromatics.
Fresh but lighter-bodied, with modest intensity to the raspberry coulis and damson plum fruit. Pretty spice and suave toast helps fill in the finish. (Barrel Tasting)
